Getting closer!

These are some studies for the design of Dr. Jones himself. Harrison Ford has one of the hardest faces to capture and I was really struggling to get him right. So I called in the expert help of Jordi Peters. He is great with stylized caricatures and his contribution really pointed out the key features of Ford’s face to me. The first pic is Jordi’s work and the second one are my designs based on Jordi’s pointers. Thanks Jordi!

5 Days ’till Indy

Only a matter of days untill the release! I know you’re all glued to your seats already, so to make the wait a little more bearable, I’m going to share some concepts and sketches of things that didn’t make it into the final cut. I’ll post new stuff every day untill Thursday. The countdown has started!

IndianaJonesAnimatedConcept_01
These were early concepts for prints for Acme Archives Limited, so in a way you could say this is the stuff that got the “ball rolling”.

IndianaJonesAnimatedConcept_02
Very early studies to get the look and feel down for the animation.

The professor is back on September 29th!

There you have it, September 29th is the official release date for my animated Indiana Jones project, so whip out your calenders and mark the date! Just a little disclaimer though, please don’t expect a full feature film, or even a 20 minute episode. Animation is a lot of work and there’s only so much you can accomplish with a small team of 1 and a handfull of assistants. Think more like something along the lines of a fully animated proof of concept.

Indiana Jones animated concept art

Indiana Jones must have been my first true movie hero ever since I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark on a VCR way back when. Yes, some other heroes came and went, but Indy always held a special place. After Crystal Skull was released, my love for the character was once again fully ignited and with no new movies on the horizon back then, I decided to set up an Indiana Jones project of my own to keep the fire burning a little bit longer. So, that was back in 2011 and “a little bit longer” turned into 5 years of hard work. The end of the project is finally in sight, so I thought it would be cool to collect all the pieces of Indy artwork I’ve shared in the past into one convenient blog post.
